'Jem' #1 Has Glamour And Glitter, Fashion And Fame
I've been excited about Kelly Thompson and Sophie Campbell's Jem and the Holograms comic since before IDW even announced that there was a Jem comic to be excited about, so getting an advance review copy was a pretty big deal. It's easily my most anticipated new series of the year, but at the same time, that means that I'm expecting an awful lot from it. Outside of our own Betty Felon, I'm the biggest Jem fan here, and there's nothing that'll disappoint me faster than a book that just doesn't get it quite right. Which is why I've decided that the first issue can only be judged on the objective criteria laid out in the theme song. With that in mind, I'm happy to announce that a) Jem is excitement, b) Jem is adventure, and, perhaps most importantly, c) Jem is truly outrageous, truly truly truly outrageous.
Jem Movie Is Different Than We Thought It Would Be...
Jem Movie Is Different Than We Thought It Would Be...
As regular readers will no doubt be aware, ComicsAlliance's most anticipated movie of 2015/ever is the upcoming live-action adaptation of the greatest glam-rock cartoon of all time, Jem and the Holograms. That said, there are a lot of rumors floating around about changes made in the transition from the small screen to the big screen. Some of them are interesting (possibly recasting Eric Raymond as a woman), some of them are worrisome (making an entire Jem movie without the Misfits), but they're all pointing at a Jem that's pretty different from the one we're used to. We just weren't quite expecting it to be this different. As you can see from the video above, it seems like the live-action Jem has recast its stars as men who sing in Italian. So... that's unexpected.

IDW Announces 'Jem' Comic By Ross Campbell & Kelly Thompson
IDW has announced that their publishing schedule for 2015 is going to include four important elements that have been sorely lacking from the world of comic books: Glamor, glitter, fashion and fame. In what is likely the single greatest announcement in the history of the medium, it was revealed today that next year's lineup is going to include an all-new Jem and the Holograms ongoing series, from writer Kelly Thompson and CA favorite artist Ross Campbell. Much like IDW's approach to other licenses they've picked up over the past few years, like G.I. Joe and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Jem is planned as a reboot, bringing the Holograms into the 21st century with Campbell's amazing contemporary designs.
